He was well received but I think it was more to do with his attitude in and around the dressing room ? Think CG referenced as such. However the keeper is a vital position - I hope CG stays fit as I would be a bit nervous if we play RS. 

Did he not have a decent league cup game or friendly game. I'm almost sure we were talking about an actual performance when he done ok.

There is no logic at all in releasing a right back who was doing a good job, to return the man who was doing a bad job to that position and then to sogn a keeper who is not better than the other 2 very poor keepers we already have on our books!  Bring in Harry Stone and aim to give him 10/12 games across all competitions - let him train every day with one of the best keepers in Scottish history. 
 

that aside, i and many others told you weeks ago that the dislike and lack of trust in Robbie Neilson will mean an emotional reaction to everything.  He isn’t going to get any slack whatsoever at any point even if he makes great decisions. If another manager theoretically made these decision there would be a bit of a WTF moment and then it would move on. 

 

However, the club are effectively in open conflict with the majority of fans who’s mind is made up. Every single thing is going to be scrutinised painfully

 

 

Tbh,If you and others are having an emotional reaction to everything the problem is yours.

Think he did ok in a game in the League Cup early in the season but i think he played at Brora and was unconvincing. Happy to be corrected if wrong.

He may have done. I’m sure all keepers do have good games from time to time, even if they are sub-standard.

The Club needs three keepers for the first team.  Whether this signing  is right or wrong will be proven next season as it can't be justified on his last few games.  I do seem to remember that he was well received early on by JKB.

 

 

Based on what though as I doubt many had watched Livi's 3rd choice keeper before he joined us on loan?

 

What I've seen since he's played gives me the fear and that wasn't against Premiership opposition.

Pereira even had slow motion videos of him catching the ball in trainingl.

Think you've got it there. Should Craig get injured, we either sign his replacement on loan or Harry Stone gets the opportunity. There is no way Ross Stewart plays an extended number of games.

Hopefully it doesn’t happen but if it does then HS should get his opportunity - that’s if we loan him out and with a recall option. And/or Neilson feels the same way 

 

It’s all ifs and buts 🤷‍♂️

Definitely mate, and not something to be raging about imo when there is plenty else going on at the club.

Wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't play a single game over the course of his deal mate. Away and be raging about it though.

 

OK, thanks for your permission to allow me to comment on  what I've actually witnessed with my own eyes.

He’s back up wind your necks in 😂😂. This place is poisonous, glad the people at Hearts think the same.

Can’t say I’m that bothered but he has looked poor when he’s played and is only one injury away from being first choice. I’d like to think we would be able to get a back up keeper who’s not woeful but clearly not.

I imagine the reasons for not doing just that boil down to 1) Zlamal presumably being on a lot more money than Stewart is and 2) Zlamal might not want to sit around any longer, knowing full well he's getting nowhere near the first team.

 

And anyone who thinks he's as bad as Kurskis was never saw Kurskis play.

I watched Kurkis at Ibrox and then seen him get sent off against ICT at home shortly after.  Stewart's performance against Brora was just as bad.  Two awful goalkeepers, just as bad as each other.

He's got a 2 year deal - every chance we'll be back in the Championship if Neilson is still here.  😜

He won't be if that happens, Craig would probably leave at the end of his deal as well if that was the case

Under the moon about Heart of Midlothian signing Ex Livi's third choice Keeper. From what I saw of him, I presumed our Talent Spotting Team would realise he is not good enough.

 

Obviously they did not watch the couple of times he played for us.....

Not even close. Kurskis literally threw the ball into his own net against Rangers. Nothing Stewart has done at Hearts comes even close to that level of incompetence. You're clouding your judgement with the result against Brora being one of the worst in our history, rather than objectively comparing the two.

 

Christ, Pereira was worse than Kurskis and Stewart is nowhere near as bad as the hologram.

Not if Harry Stone goes out on loan.

 

He'll become an expensive 2nd choice.

Maybe.  I just feel a half decent keeper would have saved Brora's first goal and certainly not flapped about at their 2nd.

He'll be cheap, that's all that matters. It's the way we do things these days. There's no talent-spotters at Hearts, if there was we wouldn't be in the position we have the last few years. And even if there is a hint of a talent spotter, he must be getting ignored.

Aye, he was gash against Brora. Was more talking about the good reception he got from fans early days and the fact it was based on seeing him play for us. He's not for me. Let's just hope CG stays fit.

Broras first goal was pinged into the top corner. As for the second, he should do better. Just like the two Hearts players at the back post should do better with the single Brora player near them. Brora was an absolute nightmare, but he's not the one at fault for it. There were 10 other Hearts players that couldn't;t kick their own arses that night.

 

Until Stewart actually chucks the ball into the back of his own net, he won't be as bad as Kurskis. Or the hologram.

I’m not emotional, I just call what I see. If neilson deserves praise I will give it. For example I’ve been impressed by Logan! Admitted I was wrong and Morton away aside I like the system we’ve found.

 

there is no logic in the decision to release Logan and sign stewart. Two bizarre decisions

Has anybody looked at the goalkeepers with contracts ending?

 

 

They are all gash,Jordan Archer,Ross Laidlaw?

 

No thanks

 

 

Buffon is out of contract but at 43 doesn't fit out new mantra,dont think he would play 2nd fiddle to CG either.

 

Folk losing their shit over a warm up guy.🤣🤣

I can't honestly say i recall a good reception, not saying it didn't happen, just that i don't recall it. But yes, we're going to need Gordon to stay fit. We're also going to need a solid out and out defender to come in aswell to play alongside a (hopefully) fully-fit John Souttar.

Let's just say I hope that any loan deal we arrange for Harry Stone next season includes an immediate bring back clause. Because if Craig Gordon gets injured or suspended I am in no rush to see 'Cheesy' between the sticks for Hearts again.

I'm sure it was pointed out somewhere that RS had faced something like 12 shots in all the games he'd played and let in 9 goals.

Not saying all were savable but it's not a good ratio.

I'd also question if he's an upgrade on Zlamal or Doyle, neither of which are good enough, even as back up

Seemed to be well though of, but cost us goals and games when brought in to deputise for CG.  Is Harry Stone not ready to be our number 2?

Stone loan

 

Gordon - 1st

Stone - 2nd (Given 10-12 games)

Stewart - 3rd

 

Stone - 1st

Gordon - 2nd and coaching

Stewart - ?? Contract done 

 

Thats how I could see the next 3 years going keeper wise and why he’s been given a 2 year deal 

 

Think you could be spot on there

So some people on here want Stone to be number two and sit on his backside for most of next season.   How is a young goalkeeper to develop if he gets no game time.   I'm sure Jamie Mac wouldn't  be interested in coming back to sit on the bench.

Stone has to go on loan, but we could have easily got a better and just as cheap backup than Stewart. 

2 year deal😂

 

Shite from the club again. 8 goals conceded with only 13 shots faced🤣🤣 wake up people who are happy with that.

CG being away on international duty was a consequence of not being in the top flight.
